The P13RR-RAS 13 Slot PCI Expansion Unit with PCI Host Card from Magma provides a simple solution for expanding the PCI capability of your computer or server. The expansion unit features thirteen PCI slots that connect to the host computer through a host card and a 3.28' (1 m) PCI expansion cable.

The P13RR-RAS Expansion Unit is a rugged COTS (Commercial-Off-The-Shelf) expansion system designed specifically for industrial telephony and military-grade configurations requiring additional PCI slots and remote monitoring capabilities. It is designed to fit conveniently into any rack cabinet and includes a card hold down system which keeps your cards securely in place.

In addition to the ruggedized chassis, hot-swappable redundant power supply and field-replaceable high volume fans, the P13RR-RAS Expansion Unit also monitors critical components inside the chassis. The SNMP remote monitoring system remotely monitors the status of the expansion unit through a built-in web server and Ethernet connection. Moreover, SNMP monitors the power supply, fans and chassis temperature, alerting you of any problems by sounding an audible alarm.

The expansion unit provides a migration path to expand your available number of PCI slots while maintaining a consistent PCI configuration. It provides increased I/O capacity and scalability because multiple expansion systems can be combined to provide an almost unlimited number of PCI slots* to a single computer. This type of scalability is especially useful in industries such as telecom, data acquisition, video monitoring, server storage and manufacturing test fixtures.

The host card relays signals from the PCI slot inside the computer motherboard to a PCI bridge chip inside the expansion chassis. The system is automatically configured by the system BIOS and all thirteen PCI slots within the expansion chassis appear transparent to the host computer.

Note! *As defined by the PCI Local Bus Specification, the theoretical maximum per single computer is 255 PCI buses.
